So much more than I thought it was going to be...& a lot of fun. Lots of twists, red herrings, great characters, and a candy factory...of course it's a fun read. The plot and details are fantastic (in the sense that they are scarcely believable), ...more

The Namesake by Jhumpa Lahiri
“My grandfather says that's what books are for," Ashoke said, using the opportunity to open the volume in his hands. "To travel without moving an inch.”

I will not comment on the writing, as I listened to an abridged version and it's been years since I read another Grisham to compare re: voice.
Legal dramas aren't my usual fare, but I felt I was due a Grisham visit when these CDs fell in my lap.

Great exploration of a singular experience that will resonate with others. Mostly about trying to figure who you are and how you can find a way to be.

The first half has the reader wondering, is this a transgender story? And her own confusion is real

Maurice Sendak
“Then from far away across the world he smelled good things to eat, so he gave up being king of the wild things.”
Maurice Sendak, Where the Wild Things Are

Nick Harkaway
“His grandfather was scathing about "speculative faith," which is the kind you get from worrying about the possibility that God exists and may be cross with you. Daniel Spork observed that God, if there is one, is well aware of the interior dialogue, and most likely unimpressed by it. Much better, he said, to get on with being the man you are, and hope like buggery that God thinks you did as well as could be expected. Hence all the lessons and strictures concealed in everyday objects. _Learn the shape of the world, know the mind of God._”
Nick Harkaway, Angelmaker

“And don't tell me the end justifies the means because it doesn't. We never reach the end. All we ever get is means. That's what we live with.”
